The milk tea was awesome! Loved the Polo buns and toast too. The Polo bun was huge, good for sharing. Service was very speedy, once you ordered, in less than 2 mins, there will be something on your table.

I went to this Kam Wah Cafe for breakfast. Pineapple bun was good. But I prefer Instant noodle with beef. French toast was too oily. Iced Milk tea was good.

I went there around 1 pm during lunch time. They don’t have big space and you need to share table with other people. I order Pineapple Bun (Bo Lo Bao) and hot milk tea, it cost me $27. I thought the bread will be hot...More

I'm no expert, but this was the best bun we had. Much more dense than at others we had at bakeries or at another cha chaan teng (tea house). All this for $6.5 HK$. We didn't eat inside, but rather ordered them out front and...More

The food was great. We stayed in the Mong Kok area and visited this place for breakfast the final day of our stay there. We had been to a comparable breakfast cafe as well and found this to be better. They had a good selection...More

A small but busy cafe offering many local Hong Kong delights & drinks. Spoilt for choice ? Choose from their breakfast menu, lunch menu or dinner menu as they had it as a set. Food & drinks served fast & hot from the kitchen.
